So, the year has passed and the wasps that staked out a claim outside my door are gone. I watched as they built a bustling colony, and then disappeared almost overnight. In the end, all that was left behind was one sad lagger, dead when I removed this hive from the back of the chair it was on. Don't worry; wasps don't reuse nests the way bees do. During the winter the queen finds a place to go into hibernation and the nest is left to be reclaimed by the elements. I am hoping to take this and perhaps harden it with some solution and then make something out of it. Or more than one thing perhaps.
